It’s been twenty-five years since the first Alien game. An Atari 2600 shitastrophe, it was less like a terrifying journey through the bowels of the Nostromo, and more like a jaunt through a bunch of discarded Pac-Man levels. Sadly, the intervening period hasn’t been kind to one of the greatest licenses ever. But Sega, new owners of the Aliens license, are determined to change that - and not once, but twice. The company confirmed that both Gearbox (Brothers in Arms) and Obsidian (Knights of the Old Republic 2) were hard at work on different Aliens games; one a first-person shooter, the other an RPG. Both would build upon “the distinctive look and feel of the original films,” and both are penciled in for a 2009 release.
